You can say Elkparts here.

I'm going to the dealer... NOW and I will try to find out about this for you.

Wurth wheel paint is probably what you want - it's what we used in the body shop I worked for, and it is good quality stuff. It comes in a pretty big can too, so you can do the enitre wheel, or just part of the wheel.

I forgot to check, sorry YOu can try patricksaab.com or something like that. They have a chart where you can cross-reference paint codes.

I'll be interested on what results you get Cymru. The finish on the OEM Saab alloy looks a bitch to match. I ended up re painting my alloys w/ Vauxhall/Opel Star Silver spray cans.

Here you go some DIY wheel repair:



http://forums.audiworld.com/tt/msgs/667385.phtml

http://forums.audiworld.com/s4/msgs/949926.phtml

the wurth wheel paint seems to be a good idea. not sure how close it matches but it looks like a good one to try. you could always repair and then hit all 4 rollers with some totally different paint to be sure they match. like the duplicolor wheel paints in silver, gray , gunmetal or black.

Sorry to dig up an old thread, just been catching up w/ whats been going on here. Great work Cymru, I was quite impressed when I'd done my rims but was less than happy when a dumb tyre fitter chipped one recently. As I can't prove it, guess I'll be sorting it soon.
